Next time I’m going to Cal Tor for lunch

Here’s the equation. It’s kind of long but I tried to be as brief as possible:

A trip to a shopping center in my co-worker’s car to grab lunch to go

+ Some random guy walking behind me as I exited Shoppers and entered her car.

+ Him mumbling something to her about a magazine and saying “I want to sex you up.”

+ Us driving away while laughing hysterically.

+
Being reminded of the time when a middle-aged guy stopped me at the Shoppers salad bar last year and told me I was “just as fine as I wants to be.” Not want…WANTS. Sigh.

x Two co-workers on two different occasions finding pigeon feathers in their salads at the same bar

= Being thoroughly creeped out by Shoppers Food Warehouse

Wednesday’s encounter prompted her to post a gchat status asking why she was hit on using a lyric from a Color Me Badd song. This was my gchat status and the response I received:

i’ll pay someone in cookies to study the correlation between shoppers food warehouse and skeevy men

mars858: x-axis=probability that young attractive females will show up at a shoppers location, y-axis=number of skeevy men. it starts at 1 because no matter the probability, any shoppers location will have SOME skeeviness: http://www.sosmath.com/algebra/logs/log4/log42/gl01.gif

i’m procrastinating
and i love google images
me: HAHAHAHHAHHAA
this is awesome
you can have as many cookies as you want
mars858: haha yesss
me: warning: they might be from shoppers
mars858: uh oh… that’s a whole other graph right there
me: hahaahaa

Soon enough, babies will be able to tweet via the womb

There is an article in the Baltimore Sun this week about the popularity of using Twitter…in the delivery room. The bulk of the article focused on one couple where a father awaits the birth of his second child and updates friends on his wife’s progress. One of his tweets even said “YAWN … having a baby is BORING right now … last time was drive-thru compared to this.”

I’m not saying I hate Twitter (after all, I do have an account) but this guy’s tweets did not seem to convey the seriousness of childbirth and I know if I were in a delivery room the last thing I want to see when I’m pushing a 9lb being out of me is that stupid blue bird. So below is what I think is a more accurate description of a delivery room scene.
